2012 Jornadas Internacionales del Cómic Villa de Avilés Martian Manhunter head sketch by Javier Pina

I wasn't aware that Spanish artist Javier Pina had drawn most of the Kate Spencer Manhunter comics, including appearances by DEO agent Cameron Chase and her nemesis Doctor Trap. I also hadn't realized Pina was responsible for the excellent Suicide Squad: From the Ashes mini-series, although the superior inks of the long underrated Robin Riggs surely helped. I like how this is both old school comics classicist and alienated minimalist. Good show.

Something really alien and just a bit unsettling makes this a really awesome look for J'onn. There's a lot going on here despite its simplicity, which is quite the artistic feat. I really like it. I'm getting a bit of a regal vibe from it, too, which is fitting.
